How To Heal The Brain And Prevent Alzheimer's Disease

Until recently, the most popular approach to treating Alzheimer’s has been to focus on managing the symptoms in the brain. Now brain experts and neurologists know that a better, more effective approach to helping Alzheimer’s patients requires a full-body assessment with all-encompassing, highly individualized treatment that includes improving the microbiome, a healthy diet, plenty of exercise, hormonal balance, adequate sleep, and more.

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Richard Isaacson, Dhru Purohit, and Dr. Dale Bredesen about why Alzheimer’s is not just a disease of the brain, but one of the entire body.

Dr. Richard Isaacson serves as Director of the Center for Brain Health and Director of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic (APC) at Florida Atlantic University’s Schmidt College of Medicine. He previously served as Director of the APC at the Weill Cornell Memory Disorders Program, Assistant Dean of Faculty Development, and associate professor of neurology at Weill Cornell Medicine & NewYork-Presbyterian. He remains an adjunct associate professor of neurology in the Department of Neurology at Weill Cornell. Prior to that, he served as associate professor of clinical neurology, Vice-Chair of Education, and Education Director of the McKnight Brain Institute in the Department of Neurology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
